I created this one from the fabric I have been experimenting with recently: base layer of stretchy velvet, covered with acrylic painted Bondaweb, foil and organza. Then embellished by machine.
I then embellished red and blue organza through the back which makes these colours shimmer on the surface. Because of the reflection from the top layer of organza the camera just does not show this.
The soldering iron came out next.
And to pick up the blues and reds on the surface I worked French knots with a chenille thread in red and blue through some of the holes.
The vessel stands about 15" tall and is 13" round at the bottom tapering to 9" round at the top. It's all in one piece but the lines I burned around the middle with the soldering iron make it look as if it has been made in sections.
This close up shows the organza coming through to the surface but the lighting makes the blue and red thread appear very bright whereas in reality they are actually quite dark.I got carried away making this vessel and forgot to take photographs of the process - I'll do that next time.
